MSA20 SATA Logical Drive - 2TB+ ??

I have a fully populated HP MSA20 disk shelf with 3TB of SATA drives (12*250GB)

The maximum logical drive size I can create is 2097151MB or approx 2TB.

Is there anyway around this? I require the full 3TB minus 250GB for Raid 5.

I have upgraded the firmware for both MSA20 and the server (DL360). I have also upgraded to Windows 2003 SP1 since it now supports logical drives larger than 2TB, but still nothing. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

The 2TB limitation is from the storage. I remember an earlier post where UWE Zessin had given a good reply on this limitation.

You may search for that thread, I could not locate it now and I was impatient :-)
